Objective 2000. .
After two years of careful preparation, last year I completely redeveloped
the WinGrid open source freeware project in
Visual Basic 5.0. I am now looking to position it in the crowded middleware
tools of online analytic processing. WinGrid 1.01, due out shortly to fix
memory, is now handling 153x153 grids albeit up against my system's programming
limits. To this end I am delaying WinGrid 2.0 development until the release
Basic Next Generation which includes new object oriented programming
features, such as, Inheritance, Encapsulation, Overloading, Polymorphism,
Parameterized Constructors, and the other additional modernized language
features of Free Threading, Structured Exception Handling, Type Safety,
Shared Members and Initializers. As Visual Studio 7.0 has not been released
yet, I want to develop for a 3rd party on a project to coincide with its
release. In the meantime I'm going to show you how I propose to apply an
XML reference grid using my career summary, previously published in HTML

Bert Buckley says, "Ingrid is a damned fine tool, which operates at
an intuitive level for me. "WinGrid" sounds good to me.
One of the
big software companies would probably pay a marketing team a small
fortune to come up with that name. It's got that snappy marketable
feel to it. Quote me as much as you want."
